Interesting magazine, one of the peaks of Poe's career, soon dashed by personal tragedy
Is there anything you can't find on the Internet these days? Saw reference to an Edgar Allan Poe review (Nov. 1841) of "Ten Thousand A-Year" by Samuel Warren in an essay written in 1969; the Poe review was first published in this magazine (which I'd never heard of) in Nov. 1841. Quick I.A. search and a bit of rummaging around and "bingo"! Amazing!
The magazine has a very modern editorial sensibility (even by today's standards) against mawkish, prudish pre-Victorianism. In the Dec 1841 issue the editorial board (which Poe was a member of) celebrates an excellent year for the magazine (p.308) - proving that Poe's career was not a series of unmitigated disasters (although, tragically, the very next month his wife Virginia presented with the first signs of tuberculosis). "A Descent into the Maelstrom" appears for the first time in print in the May, 1841 edition (p. 235); his negative review of "Ten Thousand A-Year" is on page 252; an essay on "Secret Writing" in response to a letter from a reader is on p 306. That's all I found so far. Enjoy!
